New Ventures Maine has launched an initiative, Work for Yourself@50+ Taking the Next Step to support low and moderate-income adults, age 50 and up, as they explore self-employment and develop businesses. Taking the Next Step builds upon the exploration of self-employment through AARP Foundation’s Work for Yourself@50+ curriculum and provides individualized assessment, advising, and business training to entrepreneurs ready to implement their business ideas. NVME provides ongoing support, referrals and resources for “encore entrepreneurs” as they move forward to create successful and sustainable businesses. The Work for Yourself@50+ facilitated online workshop will be offered by New Ventures Maine on February 18, March 18 and April 15, 2021. Additional workshops and advising are planned for the second half of 2021.
For additional information, visit aarpfoundation.org/workforyourself. Work for Yourself@50+ is made possible in part through a grant from The Hartford.
